“Doing what you like is freedom, liking what you do is happiness.” ~Frank Tyger
Life is a web of uncertainty, where we often believe we are on the right path, only to realize we’ve been wandering down the wrong road all along. Have you ever been there? You think you’ve got your life all planned out. What if you decide to do the things that will make your life happy but end up being disappointed? If you answered yes, I understand your frustration.
There’s no definitive map leading to a happy or fulfilled life. There’s no right or incorrect way. Society provides us with predefined milestones like graduation, marriage, and homeownership, but what if these conventional goals don’t bring true happiness to you?
These goals may seem fine to some but not what they want for themselves.
Two years ago I began to question my existence. “What am I even doing with my life?” Not in the conventional way of needing a new career or relationship, but more in an existential crisis of “ I was put here for a reason, but for what?”
These thoughts, which were nagging me for a while, became louder. They urged me to look for a different path.
